And he is winning. As owner of the Ascot Hotel and Manager of the FIFA Museum he has enough to do and can easily resign from the FIFA presidency, BUT possibly will NOT do so but like Konrad Adenauer will continue Business in full until being 91 ( or 102 ................. )

but it will UPGRADE the Location nicely.


so many other things ? some more Banks ? some more doctors ? or what exactly ?


AND back to other things. The building is so large that it still offers lots of space for "other things"". There of course will be a sizeable Shopping area and possibly new SBB facilities PLUS additional education facilities for Football people

Re: Blatter Museum getting ahead

I see what you mean about upgrade. There will hopefully be a trickle down effect from the increased activity there.

Personally, I'd like a Coop to break the Migros stronghold! Didn't there used to be a Denner? Always looked a bit shabby...

I think you mean FIFA has taken over the Ascot Hotel. Swiss Life is the owner of the FIFA Museum with the FIFA taken a lease. What could possibly go wrong.

There's a really good Indian buffet at Bar Enge, only at lunch times. Good value too.

For a company's reputation, I think it is better to be associated with the weapon industry than with the FIFA

Re: Blatter Museum getting ahead

Quick question---although this museum has been advocated by Blatter, it's not specifically about him but about FIFA, right?

Blatter is FIFA. More specifically its corrupt heart. He may claim to be "clean", but in any "professional" organisation the behavior of its executive members is the responsibility of its leader. He is therefore at best guilty of doing nothing, at worst...

Re: Blatter Museum getting ahead

From a recent article in the Tagesanzeiger (german) on an interview with
Martin Wagner, delegate of the board of Team Marketing:

Right at the start of the interview he offers the interviewer a new champions league ball, an excellent demonstration that Mr Wagner is permanently aware of anti-bribery rules and customs.

ISL used to monetize FIFA and IOK(IOC) marketing rights until they went belly up in 2001. They openly admit that bribery was commonplace, if not even a necessity to get an order assigned. They were in close contact with Blatter. ISL was located in Zug. 138millions (CHF? time frame not mentioned) were used for "Kontaktpflege".

When asked, Wagner says that this is the past, and that this didn't happen at Team Marketing - even though the ISL executives say that it had been commonplace, orders impossible to get without caring for your business friends. Yet Wagner also says that "this is a people's business" where networking and who you know and how well are just as important as your professional services.

These days Team Marketing (part of swiss sotck exchange quoted Highlight Communications) says they get 2% of the revenues they market, they used to get 10%.

Growth markets these days exist in Chia, India, Northa America. As China is well known for strictly adhering to international/western anti-corruption rules, bribery must certainly be a thing of the past. Having open doors for FIFA at all times probably helps as well since Mr Blatter allegedly has extensive experience in the field.

WOW

A life time of corruption.

Poor man is hugely wealthy, isnt he? Yes?

I doubt anyone on this planet has heard one truth from Blatter. For these people telling the truth is worthless if it isnt hiding a lie, or two...

Still, better than him exposing himself for what he realy is. And that is what the establishment does not want to happen. Blatter is protected by the Prince of darkness, whoever that is. Probably the elite that runs the show. Dont protect Blatter and the next guy will be gone. And the show stops. But if he does get it in the neck he will be given a mega payout by the Prince. Enough to encourage more Blatters in the future.

After all the crash and burn behaviour from people such as him, fear and the (percieved) need for hope has caused many to exercise conflicting bias on a massive scale. I am no angel too.

But that is not what is realy happening. What is happening is that most people, who dont know any better, are being forced or tricked into believing that it is futile to stop this behaviour which is pretty much theft on a massive scale.

All the money these people steal came from mostly the bottom level of society. That includes sponsorship money.

However to get wildly worked up is counter productive as most organizations operate the same way mobs like FIFA do. Where there is big money there are these types.

Most just dont know that the job picks the person. You cannot learn how to do what Blatter does. You need to be wired that way before birth, and/or be neglected for the first two or so years of your life.

And that is why it is a complete waste of time, not to mention irrational to hate these people. They are mentaly sick. And research into psychopaths who have been caught supports this. Especialy the ones who were very unlucky to be caught, the intelligent ones. Those guys are considered to be very valuable to professionals.

But to learn this requires a pretty decent level of language skills. Just to get there. The average person probably has never even considered buying a book on psychology in their entire life. I remember feeling like a idiot when I was young, looking at the psychology books. Just as well I did not read them. Most were a load of rubbish and there were not many of them too.

So. Still admire your winner?

You seem to have other information than is shared in the papers. The Ascot is speaking about FIFA as owners.

The commercial register also has FIFA as owners

Yes the ISL case makes good reading as most of it is open on the web. Rules have changed in Switzerland though.

True, laws were changed 2000-2006 to outlaw corruption. However, they don't cover all constellations. In particular, a local company bribing a foreign person abroad seems to not be covered/outlawed - not sure if it should as it would break a fundamental aspect of swiss law (Territorialprinzip), but especially with multinationals that would be the only way to make sure those actually responsible may have to take the brunt. Absent such a rule, a swiss national can do anything abroad, he simply needs to return to CH before the sh*t has hit the fan - hell freezes over before he gets extradicted.

BTT, I see no reason to think the mindset has changed, especially as many involved are still in their positions, in many cases they've actually risen higher hierarchically.

Remember, (after having agreed to) corruption and bribery are situations where all involved has an inherent interest to keep it under the hood. Those that don't play along will never reach the inner circles, thus there's a big likelihood that what gets dragged into the open is at best the tip of the iceberg.

In contrast to a short while ago FIFA now is owner indeed which means that Mr Blatter IS FIFA
